SEGA to Publish Samurai Jack

SEGA has announced that they've secured the publishing rights to the videogame version of Cartoon Channel's popular Samurai Jack. The videogame developed by Amaze Entertainment, named "Samurai Jack: The Shadow of Aku," will be available on the Xbox, PlayStation 2, and Nintendo GameCube in March 2004.

Samurai Jack is the highly stylized, action cartoon from Genndy Tartakovsky, the creator of Dexter's Laboratory and the director of the popular new animated epic micro series, Star Wars: Clone Wars. The game is a free roaming, easy to control action-adventure that's for fans of the television series who are both casual players and hardcore gamers. Ensuring an authentic Samurai Jack experience, the team worked closely with the show's creator, artists, voice talent and composer. The game portrays all of Jack's signature moves and weaponry as the kinetic action sequences are combined with puzzles and engaging item quests.

"Amaze Entertainment has done an excellent job developing Cartoon Network's Samurai Jack into a viable videogame and SEGA of America is proud to establish a relationship with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to publish the title across all platforms," said Hide Irie, President and COO of SEGA of America. "We will continue to pursue strong strategic partnerships to create exciting and marketable software based on dynamic properties."
